In this mesmerizing collection, W. B. Keckler crafts an expansive travelogue of the human spirit that moves thoughtfully through multiple ages, cultures, and beings. Each brief poem explores in depth, through pensive, evocative images, aspects of the human condition and their place within the rich continuum of animal existence. Keckler presents these poems in a fugal form, uniting the individual works in what the poet describes as a "holistic formalism" that reveals the poems' powerful collective meaning. Lives and afterlives are explored with equal care as Keckler attempts to restore the concept of "spirit" in a modern world often overwhelmed by materialistic priorities.
